PLENARY SESSION: Navigating a cleaner energy future — how does the oil and gas industry survive and thrive?
Great Hall
The UN Climate Change Conference held in Paris at the end of 2015 set the scene for the world’s response to climate change and continues to change the nature of the energy landscape facing the Australian oil and gas industry. Nearly four years on, and following the release at the end of 2018 of the ‘rulebook’ to underpin the Paris Agreement, this new landscape continues to provide both challenges and opportunities for the industry.
This plenary session will bring together local and global experts to consider how the oil and gas industry is to survive and thrive in this cleaner energy future and what it can and is doing to reduce its carbon footprint and provide cleaner energy to Australia and the region.
